OK. I'm kinda getting confused. Does that mean that in the US, even if a film is never registered, It is still protected by copyright?

Yes. Any completed creative work is automatically protected under copyright in the US (I don't know about international copyright law, but this may be the case other places as well). Registering works with the US Copyright office merely makes your legal claims to copyright easier to protect. Copyright is automatic.

as i understand, works are registered for convenience only, so to speak, so it would be easier to enforce copyright afterwards.
